Oh. My. God.
Right after she spoke, Moon came, and darn if she didn’t look ornery, but as she took her place next to Ryd, Ryd just kind of bounced up and down excitedly smiling now that her girl was here! She aimed a few side bounces too, against Moon’s shoulders, since bumping was their thing, yeah?
Tala introduced herself, and Ryd nodded to the other wolves present knowingly, as if she’d been completely aware of this tidbit. Yay for 2-second friends!
Then a little white female appeared suddenly, winter coat flying off like dandelion seeds, calling this Tala by name, and Ryd wanted to scratch her head. Wait… wasn’t she supposed to be pregnant? What was even her name?? Something like… tine. Twine? Nah, more to it… ugh whatever. She’d be “Fluffy” until her name revealed itself.
Another tiny female appeared, also white… kind of colorlessly white really - but look, belly! She knew she’d run into some preggo here. Ryd didn’t know her name either, but “Puffy” rhymed with Fluffy and that was perfect in her head since they were both tiny and white.
It really was a good turnout! Ryd was positively humming and ready to go, leaning against Moon lightly in excited comfort as the two looked out over the crowd.
Then the little dark wolf with the gleaming silver eyes questioned her, and Ryd cocked her head, a smile laced with attitude on her maw. She had for sure mentioned a hunt before, but perhaps this one was hard of hearing. “As y’all can see,” she started… only to be rudely interrupted by the first male to show up. Lug. Little big late Lug. Her tail wagged some more.
“Shut it, you! No one cares about your laziness,” she snapped out to him, but there was a wide smile on her face at his presence throughout her sarcasm. Moon and Lug and Ryd.. not that they knew each other, but she adored both of them and it was long overdue that her friend circle should merge!
“Righto. Everyone take a look at Puffy over there,” she addressed them all, indicating her muzzle pointedly to the pregnant pale girl. “Puffy’s preggo as all hell, and she’s only getting bigger. The girl needs to eat, and she needs rest, and we are about to go on an expedition to fill up our cache to make sure she - and the rest of us - got easy meals for weeks to come. All over our woods we got baby happy meals popping out left and right and tons of buns in the oven among the deer herds. All we gotta do is split into two teams and slay a bunch!”
If one were exceedingly close enough, they could almost see the saliva glistening on her fangs. Ryd was so ready to go.
“I don’t care what teams you each wanna go on, but one team - mine - takes the western woods here, and the other team takes the eastern side. And Puffy—!” This to the pregnant girl she didn’t know the name of, a warm smile on her face even as she spoke commandingly. “Don’t you even think about doing any crazy stunts. You can help sniff out trails, but you’d best be taking it easy with that belly of yours.”
